Strategy Analyst

June - August 2021 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

I had a great team and was given a lot of autonomy when it came to my work!

What I wish was different

The internship was virtual, so it was difficult to connect with other interns and employees. My case content was not something I was particularly interested in either.

Advice

Make more time to meet with more people! Reach out because employees want to meet you!

Consulting Summer Analyst

June - August 2020 • New York City, NY

What I liked

Ownership. I had the opportunity to own my role, my work, and my Accenture relationships. Over the course of the summer, I was asked to run a client meeting, manage a living dashboard for client leadership, and share during a team-wide presentation. My managers relied on me the way they would a full-time analyst. The People. Without sacrificing an ounce of professionalism, Accenture’s culture is as welcoming as it gets. From my own teammates to managing directors I met for the first time, everyone is equally warm and candid. The Content. I joined one of Accenture’s Life Sciences accounts and learned about digital system readiness, supply chains, and the world of pharma. Each day, my work was current and stimulating.

What I wish was different

Because my role was grounded primarily in project management, I did not have as many opportunities to develop my skills in data analysis and visualization. That said, many summer analysts that I met had abundant opportunities to grow in this area. At the end of the day, your summer experience is highly dependent on the type of project work needed.

Advice

Take advantage of the incredible mentorship opportunities available to you. Don’t hesitate to grab time on senior-level employees’ calendars. They are genuinely eager to meet new faces, offer advice, and share their own experiences!

Summer Consulting Analyst

June - August 2020 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I felt welcomed and valued from the day I started. I felt supported by my project team and found it easy to make genuine connections, despite being in a virtual environment. I developed a great rapport with my manager, and she connected me with other Accenture employees to talk about my interests and experiences. I also loved all of the programming planned by the Summer Analyst Team, including the Student Leadership Conference and the Buddy Program!

Management Consulting Intern

June - August 2020 • Washington, DC

What I liked

Though my experience was virtual, Accenture ensured that we still had a fulfilling experience. I got to work on a real project team and had the freedom to take my role in the project where I wanted it to go. On top of all of this, the culture at Accenture is unmatched. Everyone I met was happy to get to know me and was excited about my journey.

What I wish was different

I wish I had the opportunity to work in the office as well as work on a project that better aligned with my specific interests. However, I met incredible people and further solidified the role I wish to have in the future.

Advice

Be authentic. Share your goals, your strengths, and where you want to improve. Internships are designed to help us better prepare for the working world, so be unafraid to take risks and learn!

Consulting Development Intern

June - August 2020 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

My two favorite things about working for Accenture this summer were the people I met and worked with, and the skills and experience I gained consulting for a large technology client! My team was fantastic and involved many people from across the country and even internationally as well.

What I wish was different

Unfortunately, as with many internships this summer, my experience was fully virtual, which was definitely a bummer but I still had a great time and am very glad I was still able to have the internship experience.

Advice

Try to meet as many other interns as possible! Many of the other interns I trained with were local and we were able to meet up during the summer and learn from each other's experience working with different clients.

Analyst (Management Consulting)

June - August 2020 • San Jose, CA

What I liked

I enjoyed my coworkers and the training I received.

What I wish was different

My internship was online, so I didn't get to meet my coworkers or clients in person. I still enjoyed my internship a lot and grew to like working remotely.

Advice

Go out of your way to be helpful. I said yes to an experience outside of my job description and it ended up becoming my primary project. I believe that was a part of me getting a return offer since I proved to be useful.

Technology Analyst

June - August 2020 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

The programming for all summer analysts was great. Very organized, thoughtful, and well-done given the virtual environment. The technology summer Hackathon was also a great project to work on throughout the summer.

What I wish was different

The project I was assigned to did not fit my interests very well, and my manager had never managed anyone before. I wish I had been more interested in my day-to-day work, but I did really enjoy the Hackathon work.

Advice

It's a really big company, and there's a lot of opportunity for internal networking, even if you don't love your first project.

Technology Summer Analyst

June - August 2019 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

It's a very fun and exciting internship. You meet a lot of people from the Accenture company through networking events on Friday where everyone comes into the main office. Also, I got to work with some pretty cool technologies. You also get a chance to meet all the interns from across the country for a conference for one weekend. Overall, it's fast-paced and you meet a lot of people.

What I wish was different

I wish you knew what project you were assigned to earlier. You find out what project and what client you're on very late. You don't really have a voice in the type of stuff you want to learn, so whatever project you're assigned to you usually just go through with it unless you voice that you really don't want to do it.

Advice

Don't be shy. Everyone at the company is very fun and has a great story to tell. Listen, meet new people, step outside your comfort zone, and make good connections. Don't be afraid to do the same with your client company as well. Make the most of your time at Accenture.
